Sister, missionary, surgeon and Army Colonel — what career! Oh, and she even wears a habit.
women don’t don’t play a significant enough role in the church…..
Are you serious? We are three all over the place. Just look around you. Always have been and always will be — from nuns, abbesses, saints, doctors, homemakers, teachers. musicians, singers and on and on. The St. Thomas More Society has women attorneys. The Society of St. Cecilia have women who have majored in music.
One of the first woman rulers of Europe was Queen Isabella of Spain.
There used to be a saying, “The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.” Quite true in many cases.
Correction: I meant St. Cecilia was the patron saint of many women musicians and singers as the actual St. Cecilia Society was a Protestant men’s only group in the 1700’s.
